50 Slow Cooker Recipes - Chef in Training (2024)

Life is busy around my house. Even though I have young kids, we are working on potty training, sharing, walking and just staying safe :) Toddlers are such a crazy and fun age!

School is back in session, or almost back in session, and I am sure life is or will get busy taking kids to school, sporting events, extracurricular activities and pretty much anything that comes with the hustle and bustle of life. My mom was/is a huge fan of just throwing something in the crock pot in the morning and not having to worry about dinner the rest of the day. Thankfully, she has passed down that love to me! I adore my slow cooker! I have said it before, and I will say it again, it is HANDS DOWN my favorite kitchen appliance… and that is really saying something because I have a ton! There is nothing better than a meal that takes little to no prep work and does the cooking all day long so you don’t have to worry about it until dinner time. I have compiled a list of 50 slow cooker recipes to give you some ideas to use during your busiest days.

  12. Carole

    Hi Nikki - I have been following you for ages and have just noticed that you aren't following back. It would be great if you followed Carole's Chatter. Cheers

  13. bettijo @ PagingSupermom.com

  14. Kathy Penney @ Pinner Takes All

    Wow that's almost 2 months worth of meals! And yes, I love my slow cooker with a baby and a toddler. So nice to be able to throw it together and leave it alone and voila dinner is ready! Thanks for putting this together! Have an awesome weekend!

    After reading this post I am convinced we need to be best friends.

  17. Amiee

    Thank you!! Need these with a new baby and fall coming. Great list.

  18. Beth

    Thank you for doing this. I love my slow cooker, as well. It is nice to set it and forget it. I just don't know what recipe to try first.

  19. Sam Parker

    Do you actually make these recipes yourself? I have seen at least half of these exact pictures on other websites!

    1. Chef in Training

      At least half of them are from other websites :) The links to them can be found above the pictures and it will take you to the website the picture is from and where the website can be found. I was just creating a round up of yummy ones I have seen!

  20. Abby

    I think you just changed my life! I am also so busy -- but because of a ruthless job. I bought a crock pot months ago and have never used it. A few searches never turned up anything I thought looked good enough to try. These all look delicious!

  21. Sonia

    Awesome collection of slow-cooker recipes. I'm trying the lasagna tonight!

  22. Rachel

    The recipes look really good, but without calorie counts, I am hesitant to use them (on Weight Watchers :)).

  23. ATasteOfMadness

    This is making me want a slowcooker, I can't believe I haven't bought one yet!

  24. teya

    wonderful!! thankyou! could you please let me know what brand/kind of slow cooker you use? i have one but it burns everything :( even on low. i'd love to get a great one that i can rely on :) thanks for your time!

  25. Carol

    Are any of these recipes suitable for a diabetic? I am newly diagnosed and not sure what I can and cannot have. Thank you

  26. Shantalle

    Thank you Thank you Thank you for having a post that has PHOTOS!!!!! So many times I stumble upon a list of food items with no pics and I get bored and move on. I need enticing! Thanks so much, your newest follower ;)

  30. Luv What You Do

    Amazing!!! I can't wait to try all of them! Thank you

  34. DemeRain

    Lady, I hope you're happy. These recipes are so awesome that I now have to buy a crock pot because I cannot wait to try them.

  35. Krystal

    Rocky Road Chocolate Cake??? Yum!

  36. Bobbie Foster

    Very disappointed. Most of these don't sound very appetizing.

  37. Elaine

    Lovely! I have been TRYING to find a good crock pot, but maybe just a simple $15 will work just as good? Any person who works 40+ hours week, should invest in one of these. Hot meals always ready!

  38. deanna vela

    Ty for all these amazing receipes! I'm a mom of 3 with a full time job, and married to a marine...these are great for our weekly grind!!
